What Are NYC Food Tours? 

NYC food tours are guided experiences that take you through various neighborhoods of New York City, sampling different types of food along the way. These tours can range from walking food tours in iconic neighborhoods like Greenwich Village and the East Village, to specialized tours like a pizza food tour or a Michelin food tour. Participants get to enjoy curated tastings while learning about the history and culture behind the dishes and the neighborhoods they are exploring.

Avital’s Food Tours are prix fixe, progressive meals with appetizers, entree, dessert, and drinks, each served seated at a different restaurant. Our NYC Walking Food Tours focus on quality over quantity. But we promise, you won’t leave hungry! Our goal is  for you to enjoy the highest quality ingredients – small plates with huge flavor and rich stories. We strive to shift your perspective and create a sense of connection with the neighborhood, its history, and the people.
